Canadian Newsstream provides users with unmatched access to current Canadian news content with archives as far back as the 1970s, from over 400 news sources. Newspapers, including The Globe and Mail and Toronto Star, along with newswires, websites, and broadcast transcripts are included in full-text format. Extensive backfiles are available for most news sources, providing full access to the articles, columns, editorials, and features published in each.

The core of the database is ProQuest’s Canadian Major Dailies, which includes national and leading regional newspapers such as The Globe and Mail, National Post, Montreal Gazette, The Halifax Chronicle Herald, Ottawa Citizen, Toronto Star, Regina Leader-Post, Edmonton Journal, Vancouver Sun, and the Times Colonist (Victoria), some of which are exclusively available through ProQuest.

Canadian Newsstream content is updated daily so researchers always have timely access to new information. Many newspapers are available by 8:00 AM U.S. Eastern Time on the day they are published. There are no paywalls.
